The good news at The Pink House is that Bob once again passed his Rehab re-evaluation and was approved for physical therapy through Nov. 20th. OT did discharge him, which is all right by me, as she was truthfully running out of things to do...
This past week, at PT, Bob was able to stand with the hemi-walker for 1 minute and 30 seconds! Without assistance from the therapist. Which is a huge step in the right direction!
Unfortunately, since then, when trying to walk the rail at home, his right leg keeps getting "locked in extension", so when he attempts to get up from the wheelchair, that right knee locks, gets stuck, straight and unbendable as a board (even when I try to bend it), then his right foot slides right out from under him, toes into the air, as though he is kicking upward. At which point, he falls back into the wheelchair.
This only happens when he pushes up from the wheelchair arm, not when he pulls himself up on the rail... Very weird.
But I must hand it to Bob, who keeps trying to get up, even after he falls.
